Webb completed all five of his pass attempts for 60 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans. Although Cam Newton and Derek Anderson are locked in as the No. 1 and 2 signal-calkers, Webb should find his way onto the final roster for a third straight season, as he's the league's only third-string quarterback who also has a key role on special teams. However, his two-year contract is right around the veteran's minimum, which suggests he isn't quite a lock to make the team.
Webb has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Panthers. Webb has spent the past two seasons as the Panthers' third-string quarterback, but given his unique athleticism, he's also featured on special teams and at wide receiver. A versatile, team-oriented player, Webb figures to continue in such roles going forward.
The Panthers announced that the team has re-signed QB Joe Webb to a one-year contract. "Joe gives us continuity at the quarterback position," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He is also a very versatile player. Not only has he played quarterback, but he has played wide receiver and on special teams, and gives us some depth there because of his athleticism and intelligence. We are very excited for him to continue to be part of what we're trying to build here."
With undrafted rookie wideout Philly Brown (shoulder) unable to practice for the second straight day Wednesday, the Panthers might promote wideout Stephen Hill from their practice squad for Saturday's divisional playoff game at Seattle, reports ESPN.com. Carolina also is looking at third-string quarterback Joe Webb, who has moved back to receiver, the report said. Brenton Bersin continued to work as the No. 3 receiver in Wednesday's practice. However, he lacks the elite speed Brown brings, the report said. Hill made 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns in two seasons with the Jets. Carolina is an 11-point underdog.
The Panthers announced defensive back James Dockery, tackle David Foucault, safety Robert Lester, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, offensive lineman Amini Silatolu, defensinve tackle Micanor Regis and quarterback Joe Webb are inactive for Week 13 against the Colts.
